of state, john kerry, and chuck hagel, which he has gone a lot of flak for it, to the secretary of defense? >> those are promising choices. john kerry may finally liberate himself with a push from chuck a goal. they are going to have to take on the military-industrial complex and reduce those mass of weapons systems that were designed for a soviet-peristyle hostility like the f-22 and nuclear subs. they're going have to cut the military budget down from its $800 billion, and get out of afghanistan and iraq. and whether they have the chemistry and the political fortitude to do so, it remains to be seen. but i think they are a better choice than their predecessors. i think john kerry will be better than hillary clinton, who had to be macho all the time. and panetta, chuck hagel will be better than panetta, who was kind of a fill in. and spent weekends back in california where he really wants to retire. there is a little promise there. but again, it requires the resurgence of mass demonstrations in washington this spring to develop a convergent policy from the militarization of foreign-policy

kerry. he is going to be amongst the crowd with his wife. none of these chairs were here two hours only. only started putting them out at about 5:00 this morning. probably because they wanted to make sure any weather concerns did not cause any problems as far as getting all that out. you can see the staff is businessly making their way around this area trying to make sure everything corresponds to where it is supposed to be. there's one thing about this inauguration it is timed to the second and everything you see here today is not going to be an accident. inaugurals are preplanned weeks and months in advance. we are going to see the execution today for a plan in the works for many, many weeks over the past couple months. send it back to you tony and allison. >> thank you very much. >> really in some respects this day is starting off pretty routine for the first family, they are waking up in the white house and already learned the ins and outs of living in the executive mansion now for the past four years. >> in a little while, the special events will begin. the first time we will see t
